As proning becomes a familiar treatment method for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, this webinar, sponsored by Hillrom, will review the need to prone patients diagnosed with acute respiratory distress syndrome. Jessica Montanaro, MSN, RN, Assistant Nursing Care Coordinator at Mt. Sinai and Neal Wiggermann, PhD, CPE, Research Scientist at Hillrom will share how one extraordinary care unit in New York worked to adjust their protocol during the COVID-19 pandemic. The second half of the webinar will provide a review of methods used to prone patients in the ICU. Methods will be explained and compared using illustrations and video. Considerations for each method will include staffing required, necessary equipment, safety for caregivers and relative risks for patients.
